Frequent Asked Questions
What does MicroFIT mean?

FIT stands for Feed in Tariff. If you are a homeowner, farmer or small business owner, you have the opportunity to develop a very small or "micro" renewable electricity generation project (10 kilowatts or less in size) on your property. Ontario’s Green Energy Act includes a program to pay home and business owners up to $0.80 per kilowatt hour of electricity produced by a solar electric system. The province will enter into a 20 year contract with people who install up to a 10 kilowatt solar system at this rate.

Why did Ontario create this Program?

The province of Ontario wants renewable energy to be part of its future. It believes solar energy is one technology that can deliver clean energy directly to consumers. The province is introducing this program to help consumers put solar energy to work, with the goal of lowering costs and growing an industry.

Am I Eligible?

If you are a homeowner, farmer or small business owner, you have the opportunity to develop a very small or "micro" renewable electricity generation project (10 kilowatts or less in size) on your property.

How much does solar cost and what will be my return on investment?

Solar systems can be installed on a home for about $9,000 to $12,000 per kilowatt. The range depends on the roof, the efficiency of the solar panels and the overall size of the system – larger systems are cheaper per kilowatt than smaller ones. More importantly, these systems can be expected to return a double digit return on investment. When’s the last time your investment gave you a double digit return?

How long do they last?

We have partnered with some of the best manufacturers in the industry all of which offer a 25 year power output warranty. They commonly last many years more than that.

Is it easy for me to see if my system is producing power?

The inverter has a display that shows the cumulative energy produced by the solar array. All participants in the FIT program must install a second utility meter that logs and records the kilowatt-hours of energy produced by the solar system, and your utility will send you a cheque each billing period.

How Do I Get Started?

To start just contact us to set up a free in-home inspection. During this inspection we will review the whole process from start to finish. We will give you an honest assessment to determine where to locate the panels to maximize your return on investment.
